Sagan 1.0.0RC3

Tuesday 17th of June 2014 02:37:33 PM
Sagan can alert you when events are occurring in your syslogs that need your attention right away. It can store events into a Snort database, so your IDS/IPS data and log data are in the same place. This enables a single console, like Snorby or BASE, to view not only your IDS/IPS data but your log (syslog, SNMP, etc.) data as well. Sagan will correlate the data for you. It also uses 'Snort-like' rule sets, which means it is compatible with Snort rule set management software. It supports multiple output formats that any network administrator will find useful. Sagan can also stop threats based on log analysis via "Snortsam". This allows Sagan to communicate with various types of network devices (Cisco routers/ASA/etc., Linux iptables, etc).

Release Notes: Code is now formatted in the GNU "artistic" style. Multiple bugs were fixed. Sagan is much more efficient with memory. New "meta_content" and "meta_nocase" options were provided for multi-searching in a single rule. The "track_clients" processor was fixed and improved. Flowbit tracking 'by_src', 'by_dst', 'both', and 'none' were added for multiple line log support.

  • A Snapshot of Linux Gamers, Just One Year Ago
    It’s about time we share the analysis of that Q1 2016 survey (fielding occured in March last year), especially as we are about to launch the Q1 2017 one pretty, pretty soon. That way we will be able to compare how things have changed over the course of 12 months. As usual, the whole disclaimer about online surveys is valid here (data is only as good as your n size, the appropriateness of your sampling, and the quality of the responses, etc…), but assuming it’s not all that bad and all that unreliable, let’s dig in the results. As a reminder, most of the respondents for this survey were recruited through the r/linux and r/linux_gaming subreddits, as well as the readership of BoilingSteam. This is not our first survey, and you can see our previous ones done in the second quarter of 2015, and the following one in the last quarter of 2015.

  • CodeWeavers Announces CrossOver 16.2.0
  • The Wine Revolution is ON!
    As you know Codeweavers (and other WINE contributors) have been working on DX11 support for a while – they were supposed to have DX11 support by the end of 2016, but as with all complex projects, timelines tend to slip and only very DX11 titles could run a few months ago. Since then, there was no major announcement, but it seems that the progress has been very significant in the recent WINE versions (2.3 is already out).
